My favourite writer, and one of the inspirations, Erich Segal is no more. Although I am not aware of his contributions to Literary critic, and sports commentator etc… I was a great fan of this touching writer through his novels. There are some interesting things to read about his life and work. Read more about it here.
His creation and portrayal of some of the characters like Jenny in Love Story, Deborah in Acts of Faith, Barny in Doctors, Jean Claude in Man, Woman and Child and all the 5 lead roles in The Class were awesome.
Though he is physically not in this world now, his messages and the emotional connection with millions of his readers will be alive!
